  1. Simple little speed paint using Citadel Nighthaunt Gloom airbrushed over a grisaille value sketch. . .
  2. The last ornament! This one a little more ambitious; a vignette showing perhaps an aspect of the Winter Solstice. The spirit of cold and death being checked. The days are getting longer again now. Here's the Ghost King, in shades of Ice Blue, Toxic Mist, Dark Sky, and Oozing Purple (w/Ushabti Bone). And our heavenly host!
  3. This one took me a bit longer than I expected and I wasn't sure about how the spectral blue, purple, and green/white would play together, but they seem to work. Judging by his style of armor I suspect that in life he was some manner of elf. (and I can see here where I need to fix some blending, but I'm not too worried about it.)
  4. Howdy, He rules over everyone in the end... Kev!
  5. Bones Ghost King. WIP thread is here: WIP Another one rescued from my shelf of shame (leaving 28). He has a very twisted body that couldn't be fully realigned, even after heating him in boiling water which is why he has the weird base. He's just attached to it so he will stay level while the pictures are taken. I'm trying to improve my blending and lighting effects so any criticism would be appreciated.
  6. I started painting this guy as a speed paint for a D&D game, then discovered interesting complexity of his armour and body position. I stared at him quite a bit trying to visualize how I would paint him. I decided on light coming from in front of and below his hand, started, then gave up. He is rescued from my shelf of shame and hopefully will be the first of many I complete this month. Comments and criticism are welcomed. I am going to try to illuminate him as though a bright light (like maybe a paladin's aura) is striking him. Light direction picked, base coats, initial guess at the nmm highlights marked, black wash. Cloak shaded and highlighted. Bones shaded and highlighted Darkest greys and mid tones added on the armour. Brightest highlights on the armour added.
  7. Figured I'd post these since I finished up these two recently. The Well of Chaos I decided I would try out some Blood for the Blood God technical paint to make it look like it was a sacrificial well. Turned out ok, and I may end up repainting the blue areas to gold or bronze or something like that (haven't decided): Then, I painted up the Ghost King I got with Bones I KS, and decided to do a side by side comparison of it versus the metal one I painted up several years ago. I really like the look of this mini for some reason :)
  8. Hi all, I keep true to the undead theme I have going on at the moment and decided to paint Tim Prow's Ghost King to get a bit of variety while converting the Necromanceres. He is slightly converted, I exchanged the skull and one of his hands. I wanted him to cast a frost lance with the outstretched hand and preparing another spell with the hand pointing up. I already added a small green flame to the hand, the frozen lance will need to wait until the fabric is done. So far only the face and the armour pieces are finished, even though I might enhance contrast on the verdigris, depending how contrast rich the fabric turns out. Any comments and suggestions are welcome.
  9. The finished batch of undead 89031: Whispering Tyrant 77280: Lich 77281: Succubus 77282: Vampire 77284: Zombie Ogre 77285: Skeletal Champion 77147: Mummy LIch 77161: Ghost King
  10. I really have far too many miniatures. At least 20, and with a further 20 inbound from the 20 kickstarters I have backed the last few years. So for 2016 I will try to crank out those minis at an elevated pace, and chalk up an even 366 -one for each day - finished by the end of the year. Of course, this means to avoid spamming the excellent reaper forums with samey, production-line dross nobody really wants to see, I will not be posting each and every one done here even though the rpchallenge says I should. Instead I will post Reaper minis and maybe some other that I find interesting enough. The rest will get pictures linked to the rpchallenge monthly post for anybody who might be interested. so.... Another one by Reaper, here is the Ghost King, from the "Grave Danger" addons from the first Bones Kickstarter. This one will represent some leader type in my undead army for Kings of War and Warhammer. 77161: Ghost King Reaper Miniatures Bones KS1 Bonesium PVC 20mm Mantic base
  11. Here's the Bones ghost king I finished last night. He's done to a decent table-top standard (I hope). The base was kind of messed up, so I cut him off of it and mounted him on a resin base. It's 'cursed mountain' by ID Works, but I think they may be OOP now, since the website was closed down when I tried to google them. I got 10 of them for $3-4 all together from FRP games. I added a little bit of GS at the bottom of his robes so they overlapped the base (mostly near the skulls) and he didn't look like he was quite so 'flat'. Front: Back: Close up of base: I couldn't get a decent shot of his face, but imagine a hellish red glow radiating from his eyes. It is there, I promise. What do you think?
  12. Completed Ghost King. I added a good bit of "necrotic green" wash between the armor plates, over the chain mail, and to the base underneath his robe. I think it turned out pretty well. There's a few unpainted spots I can see on the pictures way down underneath, but I'm not terribly worried about them because I can't even see them when I'm holding the mini up in natural light. Camera flash is very unforgiving. Next up is the Whispering Tyrant. WIP thread here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/64985-undead-lords-2-ghost-king/#entry1243291
  13. Second member of my undead quadrumvirate; the Ghost King. I'd say I'm about 70% finished with him. Same green mix from my Lich (what I've been thinking of as "necrotic green") was used for all the places I could think of where light would leak out from the armor, robe, or skull. He may look a bit wet in the pictures, because his second coat of Reaper black ink was still drying when I took them.
  14. This is a small diorama/vignette for the Ghoul, Bad, & Ugly contest for Halloween. The figures used are 77143: Townsfolk: Undertaker, and 77161: Ghost King. This was my first attempt at OSL, and I'm pretty proud of it. The undertaker is a great figure; he has really sharp features that make it easy to paint an expressive face. WIP here.
  15. Hopefully one part of a small diorama for the Halloween contest, here's a WIP for the Undertaker. Thus far, he's painted as if lit by moonlight; a much stronger OSL will come from the lantern in a bit. So the back and face are pretty much done, but the front needs much more work.
  16. Here is 77161 - Ghost King. Base coats applied on armor, cloak, and weapon. Next I'll get to his face, gem on the sword, etc. Feel free to comment.
  17. In order to continue to push my abilities as a painter, as with any artist, I decided to try and step things up a bit with this figure and do something I generally don't feel comfortable doing...OSL. I'm happy with many things I did, and not happy with a few others but I'm continuing to learn! As a DM, my idea was that this was once a powerful king who's favored weapon (his sword) had been sundered upon his defeat. As with Viking tradition, this dishonor was met with such rage that the dead king arose as a powerful spirit who's own ethereal energy completes his shattered blade. C&C always welcome.
  18. I'm going to start off this "show off" post with an introduction. Hi! I'm Grim (that's not my real name, it's my name in the Society for Creative Anachronism, but seriously, everybody calls me that now. My wife calls me that. My wife's co-workers call me that.) I started mini painting probably in the mid nineties - I mostly used them for D&D, but I got into a few of the smaller-scale wargames - Mordheim, Battlefleet Gothic. I was into "Clan War" for a bit (a wargame based on the RPG and CCG "Legend of the Five Rings,") but liked painting the minis more than actually playing the game. About the mid-2000s I kind of tapered off gaming - I was getting too busy with other hobbies (SCA mostly.) So all in all I had probably been painting from 10-13 years, but haven't touched a brush in about eight. I started gaming on a regular basis recently and was vaguely considering painting again when I was looking over the panel list for Arisia, a decent-sized sci-fi con in Boston. One of the panels was on Miniatures Painting, and I thought "I have a lot of great tips from when I used to do that, I could sign up for that. Hell! I should start doing that again!" I signed up for the panel (we'll see if they choose me for it,) went and bought some paints, I still have a lot of old brushes, and started painting again. I have always loved Reaper minis, when I went into the store and saw the big "Bones" display, I was bit dubious, but I started getting warmer to it before I even left the store. So when I left, I had three packs of Bones minis (the dire rats, the Ghost King, and the Stone Golem) and one metal (a half-giant appropriate for one of my characters.) That was about four weeks ago. I've now produced six minis, most of them Bones. I agree the stuff isn't as crisp as metal, but it's definitely a great way to get back into the hobby. Anyway, I started with the rats (I have pet rats and love the creatures,) but found the lack of definition distressing - I shelved them until recently. The first mini I painted to completion was the Stone Golem, since it was fairly easy, then went on to the Ghost King. Pictures below, multiple views: I am welcome to any comments or questions, feel free! Real criticism is welcome. Incidentally, I took these without a flash with a camera on the tripod - I initially used the flash but found the lighting too harsh for the most part. I'll gladly take any advice on taking the pictures as well - that part of the forums is a bit light.
